Shepherd backed down, saying Beyoncé «had her time» on the main stage, but Smith added that there are «levels» in the entertainment business.

«Rihanna’s music is fantastic. She’s great. She’s a sister. I love her so much. I listen to her music. I’ll root for her until the cows come home,» Smith added. «I’m just telling you. For me, there’s Beyoncé and everyone else. Just like Michael Jackson and everyone else.»

«She’s going to be good. She can’t be bad,» Smith continued. «She’s too cool not to be good. I’m just saying Beyoncé spoiled me.»
